USAID envisions a world in which advances in digital technologies are leveraged to help people access information and services they need to live healthy and prosperous lives. The Vision addresses the challenges of fragmentation, and lack of sustainability and interoperability, of many digital health technologies used in USAID’s partner countries. To address these challenges this Vision outlines a systems-level approach to supporting partner countries’ health sector digital transformation. In support of this Vision, the policy document identifies four priorities to guide related USAID planning, procurements, and programs. These are to assess and support country digital health capacity, national digital health strategies, and national digital health architecture, including where relevant through the use of global goods. Fundamentally, the Vision presents a roadmap for how USAID can strategically support its partner countries as they strengthen the digital transformation of their health sectors, especially by encouraging careful planning, interoperability, strong governance, and long-term sustainability. It is useful document for policy makers. Click here to read the vision document.
